    I'm at 15 wks and I'm hoping I get a call from Dave soon that my NN is on its way! I know there's a couple of guys here who have one or more GC 1911. Lookin for opinions on the shredder grips. Like-'em? Hate 'em? I'm thinking about going with them since this won't be a carry gun and I'm getting it with a magwell. From the pics I've seen they like they'll fit flush with the magwell.

    Any thoughts?

    I like them. They are very grippy. I actually put them on my TRP before I sent my TRP off to SACS. I like the slim Alumagrips that come with the GC logo. The black ones would look pretty sharp on a melonited gun. They usually send the olive Alumagrips with the melonited guns, but I'm sure Dave could arrange for the black instead.

    The GI daserves some good wood. I replaced the grips on mine with Esmeralda's. The shreaders would be my choice for a factory grip to keep on a GI

    I got it with a black trigger so all black (- the barrel) would look good.

    That does look good. I will buy some after market grips at some point. I'm just trying to decide which ones I want from the factory.

    Which finish is that?

    I really like the look and the gription (if that's not a word it should be) of the olive Alumagrips on my NN.

    I'd really like to see a melonited one with the black Alumagrips. Especially with a blacked out trigger. I think that would be a pretty good look. :thumbsup:

    That's what I'm talkin' about. :cool: Looks GREAT! :thumbsup: Makes me want to get a 5th No Name, but this time in Melonite. I'm liking short black triggers in my black guns these days.

    I think it will look even better with black trigger. Especially after seeing faawrenchbndr's NN. I might have to give Alex a call...
